RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Z-Communications Intros Ultra Low Phase Noise VCO
for Satellite Communication Equipment
July 11, 2013
VCO: CRO1320A-LF Features Ultra Low Phase Noise for
Satellite Communication Equipment
Z-Communications, Inc. announces a new
RoHS compliant VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) model
for the SATCOM market. The CRO1320A-LF is designed to cover 1320 MHz with a tuning voltage
range of 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc. This single frequency, high performance VCO has been optimized
to feature extremely low phase noise of -120 dBc/Hz @ 10 kHz offset while operating
off a 5 Vdc supply and typically drawing only 29 mA of current.
CRO1320A-LF provides the end user an output power of 3±3 dBm into a 50 Ω load while
operating over the extended commercial temperature range of -40 to 85ºC. This unmatched VCO
suppresses the second harmonic to better than -18 dBc while operating with a tuning sensitivity
of only 3 MHz/V. The CRO1320A-LF is further heightened by its frequency stability versus
pushing and pulling. The VCO pulls less than 0.5 MHz with a 12 dB return loss, any
phase, and pushes less than 0.5 MHz/V within a 5% change of the supply voltage.
CRO1320A-LF comes in Z-Comm's industry standard MINI-16-SM package measuring 0.5 in. x 0.5 in.
x 0.22 in. It is available in tape and reel packaging for production requirements making it
ideal for automated surface mount assembly and reflow. For further information on this
model or any other product from Z-Communications, Inc. please contact our Applications department
